Scaffold inspections are the legal obligation of the scaffold hirer and
should be conducted before first use of the scaffolding and every 7 days
thereafter. These scaffold inspections should also take place after adverse
weather conditions and major alterations.
Scaffold inspections should only be carried out by a ‘competent person’,
this means a person who has attended an appropriate course.
This Scaffold Inspection Form has been written to aid the competent person
in his/her weekly inspections. Once completed it should be kept on file
with the other live site documents.
